Members are knowledgeable about polio and its late effects and demonstrate the ability to think analytically and strategically in advising Polio Australia on clinical matters. The group composition represents health care professionals in diverse areas of specialisation (for example: immunisation, rehabilitation, respiratory, physiotherapy, orthotics, psychology, research) and from a range of backgrounds (for example: geographic, cultural, gender).
